Realist Perspectives on Ethical Norms and Weapons of Mass Destruction

Published By

Cambridge University Press in "Ethics and Weapons of Mass Destruction", page(s): 15-31


This volume offers a unique perspective on the discussion of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) by broadening the terms of the debate to include both secular and religious investigations not normally considered. The volume contains a structured dialogue between representatives of the following ethical traditions: Buddhism, Christianity, Confucianism, feminism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, liberalism, natural law, pacifism, and realism. There are two introductory chapters on the technical aspects of WMD and international agreements for controlling WMD.
